By "cranks", do you mean starts and runs? How did you determine that it is "flooded" when it won't run? When it quits, remove the spark plug and see if it is wet with gas. If so, put the plug back onto the wire, touch the plug to the cylinder head (may need two people for this) and see if you get sparks when starter is pulled. If no sparks, then ignition problem is the cause. Sometimes a plug will fail when hot. Try a new one. Ignition failure with magnetos when hot are usually the condenser--sometimes the points. If electronic module--replacement is the only option. If the problem is truly flooding, then there are likely problems with the carburetor internals. Adjusting the H and L screws won't fix this problem.

You can adjust the idle. It could be because the idle is too rich or the engine speed is too low.

Why does my 1997 jeep cherokee laredo suddendly stops and wont restart for awhile

It might very well be that the idle air control is failling. Its coil might be heating up to much during use and so it stops working until it cools back.

When hot will randomly not start unless gas pedal is pressed all the way down. on a 2001 honda crv. replaced fule pump,fuel relay,fuel filter, dist. cap, rotor, coil,plugs, wires, and ignition control

If you hold the pedal to the floor it puts the fuel system into Clear Flood Mode. This prevents the injectors from firing and lets the already present fuel burn out. Now if this has to be done on every short trip you probably have a leaking injector.

Does the vehicle seem to crank slowly or stop and then crank when this happens?

I have a 1971 f100 with a 360 engine and a motorcraft carb. my truck is not running right at all and i cant figure out why. when i turn over the engine its acts like it will go then it stops and then...

Sounds like it might be out of time. Check with a timing light. Don't know what the specs are, move the distributor until it cranks smooth and easy. Then check timing when running.

Can anyone help with fuel mix and starting instructions for McCulloch 2214av chainsaw please

Ok, always use good quaility teo stroke oil, from a manufacturer who actually produces a chainsaw, ie Husqvarna/Stihl/Jonsered etc, all of these oils should be run at 50-1, avoid oil makes you have never heard of.
Starting instructions are as follows, switch the red ignition switch too on ( up ) depress the primmer bulb as many times as it takes to 3/4 fill the bulb ( you cannot flood the engine if you over prime, it is better to over prime ) pull the blue choke fully out, crank the engine until it fires once ( it will only fire once, do not continue to crank the engine after it first fires with the choke still out ) now push the choke fully back in, crank the engine until it fires up and runs on fast idle,now blip the throttle trigger to diss engage the fast idle position, the saw should now drop down to idle.

Experienced recent cold weather. Car will not

It's flooded like you say.
If it's really flooded, you'll have to remove plugs and dry them off.
Install them.
Now when you crank engine, hold gas pedal to floor.
That will stop gas from spraying into engine.
You need to get the gas out of the engine for it to start.
Crank for 20-30 seconds with pedal to floor. Do this 3 times waiting 2-3 minutes inbetween cranks.
The starter needs to cool down.
Then after that start normally and see if it will start.
Remember if it will not start after 2 attempts, then the possiblity of it flooding is there and you'll have to clear out the gas by holding the pedal to the floor again.
